Whimsical Wisdom

Girl with dandelionLearning to Ride My Bike

I tried and fell and tried and then
I tried once more and fell again.
I thought I’d never learn at all.
Each day I’d wobble, then I’d fall.
I couldn’t ever get it right,
Just almost, nearly…but not quite.
Until one day I tried again,
I zigged and zagged and then…and then…
I pedaled once and then once more,
And it was different than before.
I pedaled but I didn’t fall!
Somehow I stayed up straight and tall,
Riding, riding, on two wheels!
And I can tell you how it feels -
On the day I learned to ride,
I felt all strong and big inside.

Whimsical Wisdom

Girl with dandelionHow Many, How Much
How many slams in an old screen door?
Depends how loud you shut it.
How many slices in a bread?
Depends how thin you cut it.
How much good inside a day?
Depends how good you live ‘em.
How much love inside a friend?
Depends how much you give ‘em.
~Shel Silverstein
Live well today and love much!
